Creekside Quilting Newsletter 02/09/2021

  Happy Valentine's Day!  This Sunday is Valentine's Day and what do you have planned to do?  How about trying a new quilt block?  Yesterday, I presented our Clothesline Club group with this block to sew.  It is called the Silk Star and dates back to  the 1830's-1860's.  It was originally an applique block, but now can easily be made using half square triangles.  This might also be the block that gets you motivated to join our quilt challenge through April, Stars Over Texas!  Try it out this weekend and post your picture of your Silk Star quilt block on our Facebook page to be eligible to win a prize.  We will draw winners for their posted blocks next Monday during our Facebook Live starting at 4:30 pm.  You can download the pattern HERE

  Look at all this beautiful Ombre!!  Fairy Dust by V & Co., a Moda line, arrived and is ready for your next quilt project! View the full line of fabric HERE

  Need an idea of how to use the Ombre's?  We have the Amazing Love pattern by Mama Bear Quilting and it is perfect for this time of year!  Make the quilt for your church, your pastor, or for celebrating the Easter season in your home!  This pattern can be purchased or downloaded.  Order pattern HERE or download pattern HERE

 This is the Good Vibes fabric line from Clothworks and I love this line because it has a little bit of contemporary, a little bit of basic, a little bit of novelty, and a little bit of floral designes all wrapped up into one!  You can view the full line HERE

  This is a fun new notion!  Take those rotary cutter blades, that really are not good enough to cut through fabric any longer, put them inside the flower, and this notion, makes a great thread cutter.  When you are chain stitching blocks, this notion, cuts down the snipping time between blocks!  Order your BladeSaver Thread Cutter HERE

What's New in Our Wool Department?

  Two new patterns from the Woolen Needle, Star Flower Basket AND

  Coming Home Alone.  You can order Star Flower Basket HERE and Coming Home Alone HERE

  The Primitive Quilts and Projects spring magazine is our on our shelves and ready for pick-up! Just a few more weeks until spring, so start preparing now and brighten up your house with those spring colors!  Order your $10.75 magazine HERE

Upcoming Classes and Events in February

 if you are new to a class or event, you MUST pre-register for all classes and events!  Now with our classroom opening up, our social distancing space in the classroom, and people getting out more, you must pre-register for any class or event at Creekside Quilting.  Anyone arriving without having registered may possibly need to leave, unless there is ample room in the classroom.  This is for your safety as well as ours and we appreciate your understanding of this situation.  Thank you!

***PLEASE NOTE before you come to class, make sure your sewing machine is in good working condition and has all the necessary supplies you will need to run the sewing machine. A good understanding of how to use your sewing machine is a must. Sewing classes require a basic sewing kit and quilting tools.
